Suspected Arsonist Arrested In Baton Rouge Apartment Complex Fire

Handcuffs And Fingerprints

One person is under arrest and five people are fine after a fire at a Baton Rouge apartment complex last night.

Officers say those five escaped the fire at the 11600-block of Sherwood Hollow Court, where firefighters found multiple fire locations, leading them to believe it was arson.

The four-unit complex was only occupied by five of the eight residents when the fire broke out, and no injuries are reported.

Police say 28-year-old Tyesha Stewart admitted to setting the fire in her own apartment, leading to an aggravated arson charge.
